I play on the official client because I don't see the need for extras provided by third party clients. However I will admit I do sometimes employ the use of Runelite but solely for taking screenshots, maybe jagex could incorporate that feature in the official client too


Shit like that should just be added to the official client imo. It's the custom Runelite clients with obnoxious PvM overlays that need to go.


Indeed. People taking advantage of severe plugins to:
1) Get the upper hand in pvp.
2) Clear and checkmark challenges of the game.


And lets not forget that even the legit clients like runelite with all their features do too much of the OSRS game's logic for the players resulting in a gameplay that is less stimulating.

I only use the offical client, i don't want to become a lazy/worse player using all those plugins. "We are never deceived; we deceive ourselves." - Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

I do play with the original and official launcher.

To be fair, I tried to play with Osbuddy and Runelite, but both launcher made me feel like I was cheating, as the add-on weren't in game in the first place. Plus, I am old enough to remember a similar launcher who was out in my youth; Zybez's launcher.

To me it almost look like if history is going to repeat it self as the Zybez launcher was alot like osbuddy offer us now, but it didn't last long because it was found out a member of the developer team for the launcher used it to gain access to any account that had memorize the user name and password with the options of the launcher. So many unfortunate players lost millions in the process and Jagex couldn't help them as, in the end, it was their own undoing.

I know today launcher aren't necessarily like those of yesterday, but as long as I don't have full control or know one of the true developer of the launcher, I'd rather stick with the vanilla launcher.

Sure it might give us good idea of things we'd like to see added on to the game in the future, but if we can't imagine theses things without an unofficial launcher, I don't think the game deserve them.

A very rare, well thought out and mature response to this 3rd party client matters. You might get hate for this but I feel you're someone who lives with a very firm integrity.

I don't think the game deserves these, but since Jagex's business model has been revolved around money without much sense on holistic approach to it, they don't really care if one gets hacked or not. (Not saying advocate for items to be returned, but put a LOT of emphasis into account security instead of just bare minimal)

They are basically going to repeat history just by the look of it

I mean they're a fucking business. They're not a charity. Their goal is to make money. They seem to be doing a pretty good job at it too since it's been 6 years since the release of OSRS and they've kept power creep and their other problems under control thus eliminating the need for EoC. They've stuck to the integrity of the polling system by not rigging polls as evidenced with cosmetics. 3PC do them an enormous favor. It's just a couple of custom Runelite clients that have a few overpowered plugins lol. L2PK nubnubs. Can't do that? L2escape nubnubs. Can't do that either? L2not enter the wilderness nubnubs.
